Zelda Grant – Fabric Artist

Zelda Grant is a self-taught fabric artist from Atlanta, Georgia with a degree in psychology and a background in art therapy. At an early age, she discovered a love of sewing that blossomed into an expression of art. After spending time in a series of unfulfilling jobs, she became a full-time artist in 1989. She is the owner of Bag Lady & Company, a source for one-of-a-kind cultural arts and artifacts.

In addition to being an artist and entrepreneur, Grant also shares her craft with thousands of students on the artist roster for the Georgia Council for the Arts and Young Audiences of Atlanta. By participating in workshops, Zelda is able to teach her art to people of all ages. In 2002, she published a book that allows novices to create their own fabric art in Fabric Crafts: 15 Creative Projects and Home Accents You Can Make. Most recently she has focused on her art that she makes in her studio in Atlanta, Georgia. To learn more about Zelda Grant, visit the Young Audience website.
